I've been looking for a rain pants for myself. My attention was caught by Outdoor Research Paladin Pants. These have side zips which are really great. The problem is: it comes in regular fit only and I'm 183 cm (6 feet) and weigh only 65 kg (143 pounds). I simply don't fit in their size table. It is either too short or too ample at waistline.

My question is: is there a manufacturer that makes those kind of pants for people of my proportions? Thank you.

  • It might be easier to answer your question if you include a specific waist and inseam size; I'm guessing about 28-29 x 33? – Mr.Wizard Sep 16 '12 at 15:26
  • It is 30 by 33. – akond Sep 16 '12 at 15:37
  • There are several size small 32-inch inseam rain pants listed on REI.com so that should at least get you close. If you prefer a 34-inch inseam the closest I have yet found is this REI pant in medium. – Mr.Wizard Sep 16 '12 at 21:02
  • Wow, those are expensive! 8-O – Mr.Wizard Sep 17 '12 at 11:54
  • FWIW, I've started collecting my notes on backpacking gear for the very tall: ultratall-ultralight.com – Tim Hopper Apr 28 '16 at 13:34

You found the expensive Arc'Teryx Beta AR in the right size at Mountain Gear.

  • There are expensive. But at least they do exist. Maybe I'll manage to find something less pricy. – akond Sep 17 '12 at 14:14
